Never heard of having to remove the entire axle. If you have rear disc brakes, the parking brake shoes are just regular drum brake shoes inside the rotors.

Is there any instructional videos on replacing rear parking brake shoes on a 2003 Toyota 4runner. When I pull the rear rotor off it look very tight on replacing the shoes any help would be greatly appreciated. And also adjusting the parking brakes also

Any video will be of the car they are working on which wold kind of be generic in nature. On this vehicle you'll have to pull the rotors and calipers to gain access to parking brake. I have included pics of how to adjust but will be small as well as exploded view of parking brake.
